Mixed media makes videos gistable
Traditionally, videos are rather opaque black boxes of content which require one to tediously skim through in order to search for a piece of information. Techniques for making videos more transparent and easier to navigate include transcript generation, but also extend to mixed media. A static web page, for instance, can house snippets of a video in a format that is easy to parse at a glance. In a sense, mixed media is a video being embedded in its own table of contents.
